Has anyone on here ever done/or started the two qualifications?
I began CIMA and sat one exam, but just cannot settle into it.
I work in the Oil and Gas sector and have a LLB in law and a Postgradute Diploma in Financial Management so have a good grounding, just looking to try and find some guidance on whether to continue with something i'm not enjoying or to look at the alternative and find out if that is something more suited to me.

I have ACA and know many people with ACCA and CIMA. The two are quite different. CIMA is trying to teach you to be a management accountant, which is useful in industry. ACCA is more about true accountancy and business
It depends what you want to do. Do you see yourself as a CFO or FD? If so do ACCA (CIMAs can become CFOs, but its rare). If you want to go to the business side and work in the industry managing the business go for CIMA (although ACCA would place you well for this too)
